Meet Our KEynote Speakers

SEG23 partnered with Justdiggit,to help to re-green and re-cool the planet!

Justdiggit is on a mission to cool down the earth by making dry land in Africa green again. The projects that Justdiggit initiates together with local partners in various African countries have positive effects on the preservation of biodiversity, livelihood and climate. They use the power of communication and (mobile) technology to scale up the regreening process. Justdiggit’s ultimate goal is to eventually have African farmers themselves regreen their own land, and thus mitigate 37% of global warming. We cool down the planet by regreening Africa

The Local Organising Committee of SEG23 support this and gives the participants the option to purchase one bund for 8 euros. Bunds are crescent-shaped pits that collect rainwater. By digging bunds, large areas can be greened in a short time, which has a positive effect on biodiversity, nature, people and ultimately the climate. One bund can regreen 124 m2 of land. 

We hope that we can, with the help of our participants cool down more than 20.00m2 in Africa. During the conference dinner, we will tell you more about the results.
All participants who support this initiative will receive a certificate of JUSTDIGGIT.
